Sega has revealed ten more games for its upcoming Sega Genesis Mini console. The new additions consist of classics and unexpected surprises alike.
First, it’s Mega Man: The Wily Wars. This compilation consists of the first three Mega Man games remade in shiny Genesis-o-vision. The Wily Wars was originally released via cartridge in Japan and in PAL regions. North American players could only download The Wily Wars through the Sega Channel content delivery system. This will likely be the first opportunity many gamers will have to experience Mega Man: The Wily Wars without resorting to less savory methods
There’s more Capcom goodness on the way for fans. Ultra-challenging platformer Ghouls’n’Ghosts and classic one-on-one fighter Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition will be available on the Sega Genesis Mini. The platforming goodness continues with Vectorman and Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle. Beat-’em-up lovers will be delighted to see Golden Axe making a long-awaited appearance, while RPG aficionados can fill their boots with Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium and Wonder Boy in Monster World. Rounding things off for this announcement are action-adventure game Beyond Oasis and pinball curio Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball.
As part of the Sega Genesis Mini announcement, Sega also revealed that its Retro-Bit 6-button controller will be launched in late August. It’ll cost you $19.99 and will be compatible with the Sega Genesis Mini and desktop PCs. Sega has now announced thirty games for the Sega Genesis Mini (if you only count Mega Man: The Wily Wars as one). We’re expecting ten more to be announced before the console launches in September this year. Games already announced include Sonic the Hedgehog, Earthworm Jim, and Streets of Rage 2, among others.
